    Q
    Is Monterey Liqui-Cop safe for bees?
    We spray our trees with LiquiCop and would like to start bee hives on our property. Will this product hurt the bees?
    A

    There should be no problem using Monterey Liqui-Cop in an area where there are bees. We would advise avoiding spraying directly to flower blossoms or during times when pollinators are present as the direct spray may have toxicity to bees or other insects if contacted directly.
